Basic RiderCourse 2®

This course is a 7.5-hour course designed for people who already know how to ride and want to increase their knowledge and skill on their own motorcycle.  Emphasis is placed on advanced riding skills and handling emergency situations. This is an excellent follow-up to the Basic RiderCourse®, and graduates are welcome to enroll immediately. This course offers riders an opportunity to become acquainted with the new motorcycle and its handling characteristics in a controlled, off-street environment. Riders must have a street legal motorcycle that passes a safety inspection by the RiderCoach.  Extensively modified bikes may not be used. Riders must show proof of insurance and proof of ownership or have written permission from the owner.

Participants must be of legal age to operate a three-wheel motorcycle on public streets. If a participant is under the age of 18, parental or guardian permission must be obtained in writing.
